Smile It's time to fly to Wateree State Park

Hello Sandlapper,

The Big Hooter here and back in the NC forest. The Mrs. and I are loading our mobile nest(aka 18ft AS) and will head south on Friday AM. I will bring some juice for Rita in case she gets thirsty?

I have had a busy summer and early fall gathering grade A possums for Friday night. Most of these are free range critters, not super fat but just right for Gary's pot.

We are looking forward to seeing all of our AS friends and will welcome the newby's to this exciting group of fellow airstreamers. I hope everyone is safe as they drive to Wateree State Park?

The long range weather forecast looks like early fall weather, cool and dry. It will be great to sit around the campfire and share stories from trips everyone has taken since we were last together in the spring.

See you down the road on Friday.

Remember we give a HOOT,

Big Hooter

It's Wednesday, and I like my Airstream because....

....we will be leaving early Thursday am, headed to Lake Wateree State Park and ALUMALINA.

Truck is packed, Rita is happy, weather looks favorable.

For those who have never been to LWSP, you will love the park. It does not have WIFI, nor does it have much cell phone service. It does have nice, mostly level ,paved sites, trees, and of course Lake Wateree. Limited supplies there, pack in what you need.

Great walking, biking, fishing, paddling. Beautiful sunrises over the lake.

So, after today I will be mostly off the grid. If you need anything, reach out today.

We are so excited to see our old friends and meet new ones. Everyone please travel safe, see you there.

John

Going to do the last of the laundry this am, and be at Wateree mid-day.

Can't help it....I'm early for everything.

Going to start some "Welcome!" bread today, to bake tomorrow.

See y'all there.

If you would like to do a little something for Rita, she is a cheap date. She loves cheap Tequila. She has no favorite brand, just cheap. She also likes it mixed with that green stuff. I try to tell her that if she would try the really good stuff she would not need that green stuff. She insists on the CHEAP stuff, and the green mix.

To her credit, she only parties twice a year so any that she has left over she saves until next time.

So friends, as always, nothing is required. Your presence at the rally is thanks enough for me and Rita.

But, if you would like to.........
We are ready!!! Lookin forward to it!

We have to work tomorrow, so we will be on the road first thing Friday morning. Going to stop at John's RV on the way up to look at a 2015 30' Flying Cloud. Going to be glad to get away from the rain soaked coast.

What a beautiful, perfect place for a rally! Can't wait to see it filled with silver.

Everything is paved, will be great for bike riding.

A few bars of Verizon 3g and one bar of cell signal.....so a bit of connection to the outside world.

Now.....for bread.

See y'all soon,


Maggie

I mixed up my dry ingredients for my basic, beginner's loaf of DO bread and will bring the recipe with me. Are you still willing to let me pull it together in your AS and host my rising bread overnight Friday for Saturday baking?

Looking forward to learning how to use my DO correctly.

Absolutely, Page, but bring your own bowl as I only have a couple and they will be busy.

I have plenty of utensils and that kind of thing.

There are two other Airstreams here for the rally.

A lovely, lovely place.

If I don't have it packed, I don't know what it is. Box oven coming too I think it'll be cornbread making with the bean soup.

Tank is full of Diesel, fridge sorta full, almost wish the shortbed Dodge was a longbed.

Missing anything? Ohh Ohh 1,000 posts!

Locked and loaded for the AM departure; now the secret is escaping the Atlanta traffic in the morning!

Looking forward to the best SE event in September and the wonderful weather which just arrived in time for great evenings around various campfires.

I'll have a propane pressure meter along should the need arise during the weekend "fix it" seminar.
